Article Pokemon Google Trends Showdown

By Andrew Bridgman / May 3, 2013

Google Trends is a great tool for seeing what the world is searching Google for, where they're searching it from, and how often they're searching it. It even has a feature where you can show different searches to compare their popularity over the past decade. As an experiment, we're comparing Pokemon searches with ones more applicable to real life, and seeing who came out the winner. The results may surprise you (if you think anything is more popular than Pokemon, that is)…

Article The Dorklyst: The 10 Unsexiest Videogames of All-Time

By Tristan Cooper / October 8, 2013

The Dorklyst: The 10 Unsexiest Videogames Ever Made

Videogames can be funny, poignant and especially rage-inducing, but "sexy" has never been gaming's strong suit. Maybe Grand Theft Auto V's topless lapdances will rouse a few, but many other games have attempted to tighten the sweatpants of the gamer populace before, and all have failed. Here are the ten most spectacular feats of NSFW failures in videogame history.

Warning: NSFW...sorta.

 

10. Bachelor Party (Atari 2600)

 

 

It's been a long time since I saw Bachelor Party, but I don't think that the 1984 film adaptation of this 1982 video game was very faithful. Maybe I went to the bathroom when Tom Hanks ricocheted back and forth across the screen, banging brightly-colored women into oblivion. Despite the success of the movie, we never did get the film version of the sequel, Bachelorette Party. It was the same game but with the gender roles reversed, so maybe they would have been better off calling it Ms. Bachelor Party.

Article 10 Important Characters In Nintendo's History That Probably Won't Be In the New Smash Bros.

10 Important Characters In Nintendos History That Probably Wont Be In the New Smash Bros

The Smash Bros. series is Nintendo's attempt at giving itself a big pat on the back – the games are filled with Nintendo history, from the stages to the trophies in the game. But the stuff Nintendo wants you to pay attention to is the playable characters, which have ranged from R.O.B. to Mr. Game and Watch to Ness (who has now appeared in more Smash Bros. games than games of his own). Yet there are hugely important things from Nintendo's past that they'll probably never allow as characters in the new Smash Bros. games – here are 10 of them.

10. Anyone From the Super Mario Bros. Movie

10 Important Characters In Nintendo History That Probably Wont Be In the New Smash Bros Games

Nintendo's sole attempt at trying to squeeze its way into Hollywood is one they would like to forget – besides being an enormous box office failure, it did some real weird things with the Super Mario brand, including changing Goombas from little walking mushrooms into hulking reptiles with tiny heads, making Bowser look a lot like Dennis Hopper, and – their most unforgiving sin – having Luigi not have a mustache. So what are the odds we'd see anyone from the Super Mario Bros. movie in a new Smash Bros.? About as likely as the cast reuniting for a sequel that turns out to be Bob Hoskins' dream about fighting a frog named Wart.

Article 5 Theories About 'Game of Thrones' That Are Totally Right

By Andrew Bridgman / March 26, 2014

Theory Corner: Game of Thrones  

 

Few TV shows inspire the passionate debating and theorizing as Game of Thrones - and as someone who's seen the first 40 minutes of the pilot, I can see why! There are so many characters and relationships and locations to keep track of. And with the new season premiering soon, I thought I might share some of my most well-thought out theories with you. Enjoy!

 

1. I think Joffrey might be the child of Cersei and HER BROTHER!

Theory Corner: Game of Thrones

Okay, I know this seems a little out there, but hear me out: we know Cersei and her brother have some kind of "VERY SPECIAL" relationship, we know that everyone in the Lannister family is blonde, AND we know that both Joffrey and Tyrion are like pretty close to the same height. Coincidence? Methinks NOT!

In other words, Cersei and Tyrion have definitely been boning. They should call this show Game of Bones! (because, seriously, there's a lot of sex AND like skeleton bones laying around)

    Yes, Master Wayne. Your Bat-nipples.

  10. Bruce

    You're wondering about the 'em, aren't you?

  11. Alfred

    I'm afraid so, Master Wayne.

  12. Bruce

    As in, why I would bother putting Bat-nipples on my Batsuit?

  13. Alfred

    Indeed. I just don't underst-

  14. Bruce

    Yo, Alfred, what'd I say? Eyes up here.

  15. Alfred

    Sorry again, sir, you're just blasting those Bat-nips pretty hard. It's difficult to not look at them.

  16. Bruce

    Precisely.

Article If Game of Thrones Characters Were Pokemon Trainers

By Andrew Bridgman / September 4, 2013

Rayquaza, Reshiram, and Zekrom: These three dragon-type Pokemon represent Daenerys' three dragons – the green Rhaegal, the white Viserion, and the black Drogon.

Rapidash: The fiery horse Pokemon represents Khal Drogo, leader of the horselords of Essos, who trekked across the burnt desert with Daenerys as his Khaleesi.

Ursaring: The bear represents Ser Jorah Mormont, of Bear Island – Daenerys' bodyguard and advisor.

Hydreigon: The three-headed dragon-type Pokemon represents House Targaryen's sigil of a three-headed dragon. I know she already has three dragons in this, but c'mon, just go with it.
